Cara Delevingne Says No To Career-Killing Spice Girls Musical

Posted: Updated:

We'd like to introduce you to the candid and quirky Cara Delevingne: socialite, model, beat boxer extraordinaire and would-be Posh Spice. The 18-year-old has inched her way onto the fashion scene as of late, most notably posing for this year's Burberry ad campaigns.

But the Telegraph reports that the blonde Brit has also been sought out to act -- in an upcoming Spice Girls musical.

Funnier than the notion of a Spice Girls musical (which will be performed on London's West End and produced by Mamma Mia! producer Judy Craymer, apparently) is Delevingne's response to the offer to play Victoria Beckham in the production:

The Burberry model tells Mandrake: "My agent said, 'No, you can't, it will be a career killer.' Of course, I loved the Spice Girls. I loved Geri and Baby, but who liked Posh Spice? They said I looked like her and I said, 'That's not cool, that's really mean.' "

It's a shame, too, because Delevingne is quite entertaining. In another interview with The Telegraph, the model revealed another talent she could bring to the stage:

I'm a world class Beat Boxer, you should hear the noises I can make with my mouth... I'm also obsessed with drumming and have a massive electric drum kit in my bedroom, I'm drum mad.

She is also quite skilled at getting in and out of clothes at hyper speed. Watch the endearing Cara Delevingne clown around below and read the rest of her interview at Telegraph.co.uk.
